Haha, nope. My photography skills are terrible. Good luck. Would be interested in seeing your stuff if you've already got a website available.
I'm still in the process of putting together my website @_@ didn't start until I decided to apply to NYU. But you can find me on Instagram @aawesomesing. Honestly, I don't know if submitting photography will be in my best interest... but I also don't feel confident with my past video works either.... :/ urgh

It appears to be 2022. It says:

Below please find the portfolio requirements for the Fall 2022 application.

Does the "concept" in written submission mean "synopsis"?

Concept:
Describe one concept for a feature-length script, narrative film, or documentary that you would like to develop. Write no more than one page, typed, double-spaced, 12 point font. (Save as a pdf and upload to SlideRoom.)

I'm pretty sure this means a treatment. See the treatment for the Terminator that we gave in our resources section:

I just noticed this on the NYU page. It's great advice:

Do NOT wait until the last minute to submit your online graduate application and your portfolio in SlideRoom. We strongly recommend that you apply 2 weeks early to avoid technical issues that may arise.

Thank you for your respond. But how could a treatment fit in one page with double-spaced?!

I did shoot some emails to ask a current student about the question. The answer is that you can write a treatment, a synopsis, or simply capture the idea of your project. NYU does not ask for writing the concept in a specific format.
Thank you for your respond. It helps. I did sent email to Tisch admissions regarding this question, but they never respond.

And what different between a "quick treatment" and a "synopsis" then?
Ha. I guess not much. :) But it doesn't have to be in any specific format it sounds like... just that it conveys the general story. Maybe think of it as a one page pitch?

Hi guys! A bit late but glad I found this forum/site. Imposter syndrome is kicking but hopefully I'll get my application completed soon. Best of luck to everyone too!
